You're right and I totally agree with you about the value "skill" adds to
resume and CV data. I added an issue to the wiki suggesting that the hResume
"skill" might be easier to implement if the use of rel-tag was made
optional. Brian Suda has suggested that if we made it optional, and there is
a rel-tag, then take the tag space, if it is not present, take the node

How important to you is rel-tag in your implementation?
